patakokus i want to go to you first. if someone asked me the numbers about the romney tax cuts, i would say, heck, in a middle class family, earning $130,000, a cop and his wife who's a teacher, would get about $11, 0 $11,000, $12,000 tax cuts. shouldn't romney and paul use figures like that? >> i think the problem is that they from the very beginning said this is going to be a revenue neutral tax cut. which brings you to which tax rates you -- they're going to scale back. it would saves $10,000 for this couple. how are you going to pay for it? aren't you going to take away some of the deductions. this country has two problems. we're going to cut taxes, we also have a debt problem and no could country in the world has ever gotten out of its debt problems like that. >> the benjamin netanyahu red lined and said no middle class tax reduction t upper income tax deduction is gone, that's good, in turn for a lower rate. but it's a red line. >> and the business tax rates, they said they were going to get rid of that, they were going to low the rate. focus on that. >> so your guy, president obama

romney because he's had to change positions a number of times throughout the campaign. >> well, that's the democratic talking point. having said that, do you think that this is -- the debates are a lot about who would you rather have a beer with? who would you like to have lunch with? >> my sense is the debate is about who has the better vision for the country's future. who really understands the challenges. who's got the right plan and who's likeliest to make it happen. >> what do you think the biggest challenge is for the president? in bloomberg, al hunt said i think the president's problem is looking arrogant. he can sometimes come off as being contemptuous. >> upg the biggest challenge for any candidate is focusing on getting your message out. he spent months now for delivering his message. where he wants to take the country. to be really focused in making sure that comes through. >> you're plugged into voters. i'll tell you what i hear. you tell me if it's different. when am i going to hear something substantive. they feel that there has been a lot of fighting in this race. that
or you ask them directly. if i told you that mitt romney had not paid taxes for x number of years would make you less likely to vote for him and some percentage of people either move when they hear of the new information or the tell you they wouldn't move. people telling you that they wouldn't move is a pretty sort of conjecture will thing. i wouldn't trust anybody that told you what they would do under a hypothetical scenario learned some information. they may or may not already know. and that is part of the problem of the polls they ask people if you know a piece of information you may or may not already know. and so in our focus groups, you bring somebody in the and show them and add and ask them again and change their mind. now you are prompting somebody to change their mind and they are being forced to watch an ad they might otherwise to now. user lady programs of dubow campaign have introduced them into the real world survey randomly assigned mail to assign to the electorate or they randomly assigned a certain markets. and then because of the polling across the markets, they can s

here. it sounds like strategies are changing in an effort to turn the battleground state numbers toward him. >>guest: right. romney has been running a national campaign based on the economy, based on getting obama out of office but we have seen him when he is in ohio or virginia, focus on niche issues like energy. so he seems to be recognizing that this race is going to be determined by those few states. however, his campaign and republicans often tout the national polls that show a tightened race where as the obama campaign has always said the race will be tight nationally but we are look specifically at the states such as virginia, ohio, florida colorado and those states to look at how the campaign is going. >>shepard: you listen carefully to their message and it sounds like the folks lean on defense and foreign policy and they have been going after the president and his team regarding the attack at the embassy. >>guest: absolutely. if you look at the new "washington post" poll, obama is leading on almost every issue. romney only leads on handling the deficit but the two are split on
? >> i think romney has to be able to be accessible, number one, during the debate, as robert mentioned. but he also has to have a conversation with the american people and be forthcoming, just like president obama had a conversation on race in 2008. mitt romney, it would serve him well to have that conversation with the american people and how he can best serve them. let me go back to this 47%. the reason that the 47% hits home to so many people is that these working americans are working two to three jobs. they are working them because they are aspiring for a better america. so when mitt romney says he didn't want to represent the 47%, he was going after the american democracy and say we may not be able to do it today but we're investing in our future for our children and ourselves. >> secretary reich, when you look at "the washington post" poll and voters were questioned about who they trust on issues, on medicare, president obama leads by 4%. the question of medicare, when i talk about it's about your mama, not obama, the question of the great society programs that really help peopl

romney, 47%, scott rasmussen from rasmussen reports is in new jersey. and scott, those numbers were released a few minutes ago and suggests that the rasmussen tracking poll now reflects, or is reflective of the national trend towards president obama. >> and absolutely. president obama has a slight edge at the point in team. and, but for anybody who takes these numbers and says the election is over is a misreading of what we're seeing. in each of the last two elections between october 1st and election day, the results have shifted about 3 points, so we're not sure if it will continue this time around or which direction it will shift. it raises competitive. with the debates, the vice-presidential debate and the jobs and events in the middle east to come. certain voters, people who say, yes, i am certainly going to vote, going to vote. that shows 42% romney, 41% president obama. now, that's an uncommitted at 17%. and that's-- >> persuader. and that's right, it's essentially a tossup as the uncommitted or persuadables. including people who say i'm going to vote for president obama i mig
with mitt romney. might that be a good thing for mitt romney goinging into this with the lower numbers? >> sure. lower -- i never talked to as many romney advisers who compliment president obama as much as they have done in the last week. president obama is a great debater. the way i recall it, brooke, in the last presidential campaign, debates were not president obama's strengths. in fact, he's a much better speechmaker than he is a debater. and don't forget, he hasn't debated an awful lot lately. when the president of the united states and you're in the oval office, people tend not to debate with you an awful lot. you live in the presidential bubble. he hasn't been on stage with other people challenging him. so in a way, he sort of has got to get used to this routine over and over again, where as mitt romney has been on a debate stage an awful lot of times. >> if i recall, you were in a lot of those debates, he's tough, he's no wallflower that mitt romney. what is his biggest challenge, though? going into wednesday? >> the biggest challenge, i think mitt romney has got to do a couple
, one thing tilting in romney the direction. interesting numbers in the poll. which candidate are you confident will get the country back ton track economically? president obama, 47%. mitt romney, 51%. now, obama's had an edge on the economy in a lot of recent polls by a narrow one, two-point margin. not that much difference. interesting nonetheless mitt romney has a little edge there. a nice talking point for this campaign heading into this week, john. >> peter, live in washington. sorry we couldn't be in the same room, just too much raw energy. >> me, too. >> thank you, peter. >>> moving on, the big mystery in tennessee this morning. where you two missing siblings. a 9-year-old and 7-year-old brother. grandparents killed in a house fire last week. it was first believed the children perished it's a well but no sign of their bodies found. on friday a statewide amber alert was issued for them. >>> a taliban taking responsibility for a suicide. three u.s. service members among the three killed. 50 others wounded. the bomber targeted a joint nato-afghan patrol in khost city. this after t
